PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES
I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Jane Austen and Seth Graham-Smith (who once took a class is English Literature.)
Though on first sight one might pass the book off as part of the fluff collections of the horror genera; but, I challenge you to read the first twenty pages and then put the book away.
I have never read any of Jane Austin’s, or had any desire to try one of this ilk; but the inclusion of zombies have made the book both palatable and intriguing – forcing me to carrying on to the end of what otherwise would have been a soupy love story.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a love story that is absolutely ridiculous to the point of absurdity – with enough violence and gore to excite the most harden horror fan.
